A retired deep-sea diver can love performing stunts well into his golden years at 85.

He learned to skydive and even perform risky feats strapped to the wings of an airplane. Indeed, his antics gave those around him plenty to talk about, but the greatest stunt he ever pulled wasn’t discovered until he was gone in his final years. Ken lived near owen and caroline wilson and their two-year-old daughter, caddy from the moment their sweetest baby girl was born ken, whom owen described as a real character. Doted on a little girl. The elderly man didn’t have grandchildren of his own, so he showered caddy and grandfatherly love developing a close bond and friendship with a child.

We moved to the street three years ago and made a real point of going around and meeting all the neighbors owen recalled ken. Wasn’T in when we first called round, but the next day we heard some banging, i went out to investigate and there was canon navy overalls bouncing across the face of his house at the top of a 20-foot ladder. He was 83 at the time owen added saying the first impression perfectly summed up ken who did an airplane wing walk at 85.

Everyone in the wilson family, seemingly adored, the old daredevil, even their dog, on that first meeting he gave our dog a chocolate. Biscuit. She absolutely loved him from that moment on when recalled really loved him passionately, she would shriek when she saw him.

He added he’d call her my darling and sweetheart. Sadly, ken passed away at 87 years old as his family cleaned organized and collected items from his home.

It was well known that ken absolutely adored caddy, but what wasn’t known is just how deep ken’s love for the little girl ran.

It became clear when his daughter stopped by the wilson’s home clutching the large plastic sex. She had discovered in her deceased father’s house, after handing it to owen and caroline the couple looked inside, realizing what ken had done for them without them ever even knowing the bag was filled with items that obviously belonged to caddy, but they were items she didn’t even Know about yet after realizing the time would come when he wouldn’t be around ken planned ahead, buying wrapping and stashing away 14 different christmas gifts for his little bunny, ensuring she would have a new one to open every year until she was 16

Stunned by the unexpected gesture, an amazing act of kindness from their elderly neighbor, the couple called caroline’s mother to share the news tearing up over their neighbor’s big heart. Then they took to social media to share the story as well as a dilemma that had developed. Although the gifts were intended to be won per year, none of them were labeled to indicate when they should be opened. My wife and i think it might make a nice christmas tradition to give our daughter a present from ken for the next 14 years.

Owen said issue: is we really have to open them now? He added explaining that it was the only way to make sure she got the right gift at the right time in her life, since the gift for a toddler would be much different than one from a teen. But there was another problem as well who could resist the temptation of a stack of gifts for over a decade the family couldn’t and decided to open some of them. One was a book and no one said he could tell there were more of them in the other gifts as well as three or four soft toys. The second present caddy open was a stuffed goat.

As for the rest of the items, it was anyone’s guess it also wasn’t known how long ken had been hoarding away the presents or whether he put together the sweet collection in his final days either way.
